Downtime

I've always liked spontaneity, giving myself the freedom, as much as possible, to do what I want to do in the moment. I've also always dreamed big, wanting to do many different things, and do them well. Add to that the necessity of paying my own bills, and my time is always seriously booked.

I find myself having to think about scheduling downtime. Time to read, time to watch TV, time to play games. Time to sleep.

Sleep is particularly important, since exhaustion resembles writer's block quite thoroughly.

I guess one of my goals in the new year should be to schedule--or give myself kudos for spontaneously grabbing--enough good, quality downtime.

But not today. Right now, I have to pay bills, and I have a story half-written that's inspired by the Journal of Unlikely Entomology's current theme, and I do want to get a proper bio up over at Amazon and Goodreads (where I now have new, under-construction author pages), and the next installment of Wild Snowy Chase to finish (will it finally be the last one? That's the plan anyway.) and ...

Work now, downtime later!
